There are currently a total of 30 residents in this columnar program, six in each PGY level. We accept applications only via the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) from the Association of American Medical Colleges.

Applications must contain the following in order to be considered:

  1. ERAS Application
  2. Official Dean's Letter and transcript of grades
  3. Three letters of recommendation, preferably from surgical faculty

Eligibility Requirements

Applicants must have graduated from medical school since 2015. Applicants must also have prior clinical practice in the U.S. as a student, resident or M.D. after December 2015.


Interviews will be conducted virtually on Wednesday mornings.

Our residents will host a virtual social event for applicants on the Tuesday evening prior to interviews. This gives applicants a chance to meet and visit with our residents informally ahead of the interview day.

Interviews are scheduled by invitation only.
